updated 2nd February 2014
For many of you who visit this site the 28th Febrauary 1994 will be remembered as being the last date the Directorate, or DTELS as was lattery known, ceased to exist as a public entity before ownership was transferred to NTL the following day by way of a trade sale.
Sadly, a number of former colleagues and friends are no longer with us, but the memories of them and the old organisation still lives on through this web site and with many of you who have shared your your thoughts with me over the years.
It is encouraging to know the site continues to be visited from people across the globe and on occasions still provides a source of new material.It is planned to hold a reunion in London around the end of November. To mark the 20th anniversary it would be wonderful to see more ex-DTELS people attend this years reunion. Please check this web site around July-August 2014 for further details as the Civil Service Club can cater for up to seventy-five people. Let’s see if we can fill the room this year!!
Four photos of people based at Mold Outstation from Peter Needham taken late 1970’s until early 1990s.
Photos from the 2013 DTELS Reunion held in London on 26th November 2013.
An excellent high quality Aerial photograph of Cranbrook Depot from Marcus Sutcliffe taken circa late 1970s/early 1980s.
Please continue to visit this site during 2014, particularly the forum for new postings and this home page.
Until my next message sometime during 2014, I wish you good health, happiness and fortune
